One person was killed and another critically hurt when family members began shooting at each other at Grady Memorial Hospital in downtown Atlanta, police said.

The family came to the hospital after a separate incident in nearby DeKalb County late Sunday, Atlanta Police Deputy Chief Charles Hampton said.

"What we do know is the incident started in DeKalb County, and some family members from that incident showed up outside Grady emergency room," Hampton told reporters at the scene, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "There was a dispute and that then escalated to gunfire."

The scene was quickly contained and there was never a threat of an active shooter, Hampton said. Photos showed police tape blocking a street outside the hospital, and WAGA-TV reported there were multiple evidence markers on the ground, and a car with blood on the side was towed away.
